Certified: Gluten-Free Kosher

Almond flour is a low-carb, gluten-free baking alternative to standard wheat flour. As you might have guessed, this flour is made of almonds (and only almonds), which are first blanched to remove the skin and then ground up to a very fine consistency, similar to that of wheat or cornmeal.

A Gluten-Free Staple

Sometimes known as almond meal, this flour is particularly popular with customers on gluten-free diets, as it serves for almost all of the same uses as wheat flour. Many gluten-free cookbooks feature the flour prominently in their recipes, as do many almond flour recipes on our site. Our almond flour is certified gluten-free.

Compared to other flours, the flour is especially flavorful, with a nutty taste that works well with many other foods. It produces baked goods that are especially light and moist. It's also very easy to use, and doesn't require any sifting or kneading.

Even if you're not on a gluten free or low carb diet, give this unique flour a try and you won't be disappointed by the nutty flavor, delicate undertones, and the moist yet light baking products that result from its use. It'll be a refreshing difference from your everyday flours.

Our Registered Dietitian's Top Pick

Our Health Nut Registered Dietitian loves almond flour because it contains healthy fats, vitamin E and plant based protein. It's also tasty in pancakes and it's the perfect gluten-free flour stand-in for bakers.

Almond Flour Nutrition

1. Protein Powerhouse: Almond flour is high in protein (1 serving has 6 grams of protein compared to 5.5 grams in one egg) and low in carbohydrates and sugar. This makes it an attractive option for customers on paleo or low-carb diets. Furthermore, the protein is great for maintaining and building healthy muscles.

2. Heart-Healthy: 64% of the fats found in almonds are monounsaturated fats and according to the American Heart Association, these fats help lower harmful cholesterol as effectively as expensive pharmaceutical drugs in addition to lowering the risk of heart disease.

3. Protective Antioxidants: One ounce of almonds has 35% of your daily recommended value of vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant. According to The Journal of the American Association (2002), the high vitamin E content of almonds has been linked to protecting against Alzheimer's disease.

4. Nutty Health Benefits: Along with being a rich source of protein, monounsaturated fats, and antioxidants, the flour also contains high amounts of calcium, iron, and dietary fiber, nutrients that people with gluten-free diets sometimes lack.

The Blanching Process

Our almond flour is made from blanched almonds, which means that the almonds go through a process where steam is injected into the water and the almonds are soaked for 2 minutes to soften the skins. The almonds are then passed onto rollers to remove the loosened skins. Finally, the almonds are finely ground to an even consistency that is ideal for baking and cooking. There are no additional ingredients added to the flour; it is simply made from almonds. That’s it!

Baking and Cooking Ideas

Almond flour is a popular alternative flour due to its subtly sweet taste, high nutrition content, and low-carb attributes. To use it as a substitute for wheat flour, replace the indicated amount of wheat flour in the recipe with the same quantity of almond flour. Baked goods made from almond flour should sit longer once removed from the oven because of their more delicate nature.

Many people prefer baking with blanched almond flours because the absence of skins creates a soft, light-colored flour. Almond meal, by contrast, has a much coarser texture and can be made from unblanched almonds. Further grinding would cause the fine almond flour to release more oils, turning it into a creamy almond butter.

Packaging and Storage

This almond flour arrives ready-to-use in our signature nutty re-sealable packaging to help the flour maintain its freshness. Due to the flour’s high moisture and fat content, the package should be stored in the fridge if you plan to keep it for more than a couple weeks. Transfer the flour to the freezer if you're planning to keep it even longer. This will extend the shelf life and prevent rancidity. Almond flour should be thawed before handling straight from the freezer since it will initially be clumpy and difficult to work with.

“My husband and I have ordered several times from Nuts.com and we will keep doing it! The products are amazing! We haven't tried anything we didn't like! We usually make the same orders of Coconut Flour, Almond Flour and Raisins but this last time we tried the Veggie Chips and the Pecan Date Rolls. First the Veggie Chips are absolutely wonderful with some homemade guacamole or some pineapple salsa! The Pecan Date Rolls are just out of this world delicious! Thanks Nuts.com for fast service and excellent products!!!”

“LOVE nuts.com products and customer service! You guys are life savers and have a life long customer here. Due to some crazy allergies my diet has had to change drastically over the last few years. Thanks for keeping the quality high, prices great, selection AMAZING and making cooking fun for me again :). The almond flour and coconut flour are my go-tos but I recently ordered the squash chips and mushroom chips and they are so so good. Will be re-ordering soon. ”

“I love ordering the Almond Flour from these nutty people! The price, even with shipping, is better than buying those small bags. And it seems to be an even finer grind too!

“I bought five pounds not too long ago and have been baking up a storm. What started as baked goods for me have quickly become family favourites and disappear rather quickly. Just ordered 25 pounds more and got it today. Shipping is quick and the flour is yummy and bakes well.”
